I love all of the colors that spring brings our way and I am already getting antsy waiting for spring to come our way.
When I started to think about a craft to welcome spring, I wanted to create something that could be framed and given as a gift too!
Today I’m sharing with you the idea that came to me while dreaming about spring!
~ Springtime Felt Craft for Kids ~
(All Supplies Listed Will Make Both Crafts Pictured Below)
1 Piece of Felt (8.5 x 11) of each of the following colors ~
Dark Blue, Light Blue, Dark Green, Light Green, White, Yellow, Brown, Red, Pink, Purple and Orange
1 Skein of Embroidery Floss of each of the following colors ~
Light Green, Light Brown, Light Pink, Light Purple, Light Blue and Orange
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
1 Large Needle
(an Upholstery needle works best for little ones since it doesn’t have a very sharp tip)
Black Ink Pen or Fine Tip Marker
Step One: Gather all of your supplies and decide what springtime scene you are going to make.
Step Two: Cut the pieces of dark blue and light green felt in half lengthwise. Then using your stencils (or an artistic hand), pen/marker trace and cut out the items you need to create your scene.
Step Three: Thread your needle with a piece of embroidery floss approx 2′ long. Sew along all of the edges of each piece of your spring scene.
Step Four: Connect the sky and grass together by overlapping the sky approx. 1/2″ over the grass and use the hot glue gun to secure it.
Step Five: Sewing through the felt can be a bit of a difficult task, so for younger children you can simply hot glue the spring scene pieces onto the sky and grass.
Step Six: Your springtime felt craft is complete! You can either hang it on the fridge or frame it to give as a gift!
